Funnier Jokes Wins.

Jamcke
LakevilleNorthJT

This debate is basically a continuation of a debate that my opponent started with another member. I liked it so much I though I'd challenge him to another. Please take into consideration that my opponent has already used several jokes, so he should be granted a handicap for voting purposes if he choses to except. Also, this debate is strictly for fun, and none of its content should be construed as being intentionally offensive to anyone. As for my first joke: Q: What does Snoop...

The existence of God

DiablosChaosBroker
Puck

I affirm that God exists. "The complexity of our planet points to a deliberate Designer who not only created our universe, but sustains it today."(1) The Earth...its size is perfect. The size of the Earth and its corresponding gravity holds an atmosphere of mostly nitrogen and oxygen gases, only extending to about 50 miles of Earth's surface. "It is at a perfect distance from the Sun; not too hot, not too cold."(2) It has the perfect gravity without the difficulty of heavy gravity and lo...

The Bible is an immoral bit of utter crap.

Tatarize
mongeese

In the comments of the debate http://www.debate.org/debate/8102/ : DATCMOTO's offered a counterargument to my claim that thought-crimes were immoral by citing some thought crimes in the Bible. I contended that the that was not an argument against my position but a splendid argument that "the Bible is an immoral bit of utter crap." You claimed that this was offensive: As proper conduct dictates I now offer this debate on two points to be proved: 1) The Bible is an immoral bit of utte...

War memorials do more harm than good.

Danielle
JustCallMeTarzan

Greetings to my opponent and welcome to Round 2 -- Good luck! For the purpose of this debate, a war memorial will be defined as a building, monument, statue or other edifice to celebrate a war or victory, or (predominating in modern times) to commemorate those who died or were injured in war (Source: Wikipedia). If my opponent disagrees with the definition, I ask that he provide another relavent to the resolution as soon as possible. So without further ado (or is it adieu?), let's begin!...

flag burning

Flag burning needs to be illegal. Burning the flag is simply unpatriotic. A loyal american would protect the flag, not destroy it. The flag is the national symbol of our country....

George Bush is a good president.

mrpresident

George Bush has destroyed our nation. 1. He implimented No Child Left Behind, overcrowding our good schools and still leaving our bad schools to be bad. 2. He created the Iraq War for the purpose of finding weapons of mass destruction, stopping terrorism, and promoting democracy. They vote, they have no WMDs, and terrorism will NEVER be stopped, and Iraq has nothing to do with it. 3. He lowered out economy significantly, lower than most African nations. 4. He raised gas prices, making tr...

Socialized Medicine is bad for America!

griffinisright
TeaandScarves

I believe National Health Care is a terrible Idea for America. It will destroy capitalism, take away from personal responsibility, hurt the middle class of America and eliminate consequences for people who do stupid things such as punch holes in their nipples and penis to hangs things out of. Very few people will benefit from such a program because taxes will go through the roof! The people at the poverty level will have less money. The middle class will hardly be able to afford to live and will...

The Big Bang Theory rationally disproves God

Evan_MacIan
Korezaan

I was reading a debate in which my opponent stated that the Big Bang theory rationally disproves God, and I wanted to get a little explanation for that. So, I think Korezaan should prove the point that the Big Bang Theory rationally disproves God, which I just don't get. Before I let him get started, I'd just like to say a few things. I believe the Big Bang Theory is basically correct. I believe Creationism is basically incorrect. I read Genesis at the allegorical level, as do most of t...

Sex Education should be taught in public schools.

BeatTheDevil89
LakevilleNorthJT

I think that the title basically speaks for itself as well as the definitions. So on with my opening. Contentions: I. A bias free education is the right of every child, including sex education especially since virtually 100% of them will use it, even in marriage. II. To not teach sex education would be harmful to students III. The facts should be taught in school, morals should be taught at home because morals differ from family to family....

Marine_to_be
Danielle

I feel that we should be involved in the War. Now by looking at my name i am a part of the armed forces. I leave June 9th for Paris Island, so that has an influence on my opinon. I look back and my first question for anyone who is against the war is do you remember sept. 11 and watching people holding hands and jumping out of the 83 floor to escape the flames. because terrorist thought it necessary to attack us. Now i know alot of people make the arguement that we shouldnt have gone to Iraq b...
